The last 2010 quilt
This quilt is finished even though the owner gave me permission to not quilt it if I had other priorities. I decided to go ahead and quilt it to call an end to the 2010 quilting schedule. Now I’m all set to do the end of year paperwork with an empty slate for 2011.
It’s a dog theme quilt so I did paw prints on the outside border. I did a swag design on the inside border to jazz it up a bit.
I did dog biscuits on the setting triangles.
This person prefers minimal quilting on her quilts. I did line dancing on the pieces and simple outline around the dogs of the solid squares. I can always add more quilting but it’s very hard to take away quilting if it’s too much.
December 2nd would have been my son Derek’s 47th birthday. He committed suicide when he was 40. I spent a good deal of time thinking of him on his day.
